Podcast: It’s a family thing

Family Feuds: Children Of Morta Launches Kickstarter

The family that slays together, stays together - or at least falls to gribbly enemies together. "Narrative-based roguelike" Children of Morta perked Adam's interest late last year with its detail-packed pixel animations, and it's now launched on Kickstarter. At the time of writing it's a promising third torwards its funding goal, and the pitch video has plenty more lush animations and hack-and-slash combat.
